What’s a simple way to save money and reduce your carbon footprint?
Use less energy, of course.
But how are companies actually doing this?
Join NAEM on May 4th as we take a look under the hood at Toyota’s sustained energy program, including its renowned Energy Treasure Hunts, and get a snapshot of how Fujifilm increased its energy efficiency.
Founded on the principle of continuous improvement, Toyota continues to raise the bar on energy management. Since 2001 Toyota has reduced total energy consumption by 19.1% in its sales and distribution network, including an HVAC control strategy that reduced energy consumption at a Kentucky parts center by 40%! Get the details on their famous treasure hunts along with other tools that are used to support their energy program both internally and externally.
Even in large, well-managed portfolios, energy efficiency is often left to staff at individual sites. Techniques for understanding opportunity at the portfolio level are lacking. Similarly, carbon inventories are increasingly popular, but are not used to drive decision making regarding potential savings. Fujifilm fully leveraged their inventory data to design a program with specific energy savings goals. Their approach will be of interest to any company with a large portfolio of buildings.
